RCA sockets
Default RCA sockets

Hi all, looking for suggestions for reasonably price RCA socket. Will be used for multiple builds, phono, pre, amp. Nothing to expensive as I have limited funds. I’ve seen various options on eBay ranging in price, from $1 for 1, $10 for a dozen.
Any suggestions are welcome, thanks all.

For reasonable quality, take a look here; RCA Connectors | RS Components
This will give you an idea of manufacturers.

As a quality price ratio, it's hard to beat in my experience the Neutrik Rean NYS 367. They're about 2.5€ a piece. Not the cheapest but a fair price.

On ebay, they're pretty much all the same generic stuff. I buy my cheap ones from Reichelt: CBGIS RT: RCA connector, installation, insulated, gold-plated with coloure at reichelt elektronik at 0.65€ a piece. They aren't as robust, the plating scratches more easily, they don't come with two nuts and can be a bit loose. But hey, they're cheap.

Thanks gang, very helpful information. Yes the plating wearing off with cheaper parts is something I would like to put behind me.
